This was a fascinating look at community and family and what those words mean to different people at different life stages. My only quibble is that the polyamorous crowd was largely ignored, though a lot of other family styles were covered nicely. Some of it is pretty dated, but all of it is interesting. Well-worth reading

I guess this book is a little dated now--it was even when I read it in 2001--but I think about it often. I love how it shows that there are so many different ways people choose to live their lives, and it reminds me of my camp counselors when I was a kid, many of whom were Portland lesbians like this author.

I found this book in my Dad's collection after he passed away. I can't imagine why he owned it, it does not seem like something he would read. But there it was and being the Sociology Major that I was I read it. What a treat full of great ideas for creating community.

Somebody gave me this book at a time when it was probably Not My Thing, but it turned out to be a fascinating look at the changing definition of family. I've recommended it to several people whose definitions could use a little redefining.
